Fountaine (Marcel Duchamp, 1917).
Dada or Dadaism was an art movement which began in Zurich, Switzerland in 1916, spreading to Berlin shortly thereafter. It was born out of negative reaction to the horrors of World War I. Dada rejected reason and logic, prizing nonsense, irrationality and intuition. Dada activities included public gatherings, demonstrations, and publication of art/literary journals; passionate coverage of art, politics, and culture were topics often discussed in a variety of media.

"This fine example of ‘oddness in action’ is this photo of a guy named Hugo Ball elaborately reciting a poem called Karawane. Hugo Ball, Hans Arp, Tristan Tzara und Marcel Janco were the founders of the famous Cabaret Voltaire in Zurich (Switzerland) which is known to be “the cradle of dadaism”. Dadaism was a cultural movement that involved visual arts, literature, poetry, theatre and graphic design." – via @susanasuju
